Painting of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1876

Contributed by Longfellow National Historic Site

Portrait of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow by his son Ernest W. Longfellow in 1876. The family thought it the best portrait of Longfellow ever taken, but Ernest thought the one he painted for Bowdoin College (now hanging in the Hawthorne-Longfellow Library) after studying with Couture better.
